Bluestone Coal is looking to hire 250 additional workers

BECKLEY, WV (WOAY)- Bluestone Coal is hiring 250 additional workers, adding to its staff and providing high paying jobs at its mines across southern West Virginia.

It has been a long road back since the Justice family purchased Bluestone from the Russian Company Mechel, which had fallen on tough times. No doubt, Bluestone has the highest quality low and mid-vol coals in North America, along with a low-cost mining structure.

Proudly today, Bluestone is now producing at a level that requires additional workers, and the company is excited to put West Virginians back to work.

“We need both surface and deep mine workers,” said Jay Justice. “All positions, ranging from foremen to mechanics, electricians, truck drivers and all types of equipment operators will be put to work as soon as possible.”

A variety of jobs are being offered, with the highest paying wages in the coal sector, along with a newly redesigned bonus program that will benefit the entire family.

Bluestone has always been a family operation, starting in 1971, and the new bonus program aims to provide incentives to help spouses and children, as well as the Bluestone employee.
“Because of its extremely high-quality coal, Bluestone provides long-term job security, even if the market turns down,” said Justice.
